The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Corridors to Freedom, Action Research for Emancipation.

Marroquin, Lizeth.

Transit corridors are “not only conduits to move people, freight but also to improve a region’s economy and build more livable communities” (Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota). They may become a catalyst to improve neighborhoods, and strengthen local business.

The Corridors of Opportunity project aims to create “sustainable, vibrant, and healthy communities through development and revitalization along the transit corridors”. Funding for the Corridors of Opportunity is about $21 million and comes from grants and loans from the Living Cities Integration Initiative and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The objective of this paper is to provide an assessment on the impact of Corridors of Opportunity on the Latino population living around the corridors. Developing and sharing an understanding about what is at stake can lead to creating solutions and organizing the community.
